On Tuesday, Shamrock Rovers travel to Breidablik Kopavogur to reverse their UEFA Champions League first-round qualifying result. After winning the first leg last week, Breidablik is up 1-0 in the series. Breidablik must now win this game to guarantee their progression.
Shamrock Rovers vs Breidablik
The reigning Icelandic champions have been playing well and are optimistic about leaving this game with at least a victory. The team led by Oskar Thorvaldsson has won its previous three games and has only given up one goal while scoring seven others. Last time out, they overcame Fram 1-0 in the domestic league to keep their hopes of winning the league title alive.
Breidablik has been playing well and is back in the Champions League for the first time since 2011. In their three games, they have won each one while scoring 13 goals.
When they hosted the first leg of this match, Shamrock Rovers lost the opportunity to score the first goal. Now they must win by a margin of two goals or more away from home and accomplish it the hard way. The Irish team’s recent goalless streak of four games makes this an extra challenging job.
Rovers, in contrast to Breidablik, have not competed since the opening leg. Given that they have had more time to develop their game plan, this may be in their favor. In their last five games, Stephen Bradley’s team has only managed one victory due to poor form. They have suffered two losses in this time. They will hope that their heritage today helps because they frequently participate in the tournament.
Breidablik has won four of its previous five games across all competitions, losing the other in the Icelandic Cup. Additionally, Bilkar has won five of the previous six games at Kópavogsvöllur to remain unbeaten. Shamrock Rovers, on the other hand, have only dropped one of their last five games played away from Tallaght Stadium. In the UCL Qualifier, Breidablik also managed to take the lead against Rovers in the away leg. To fancy their chances in front of their home crowd, we chose Bilkar as our favorite.
The Icelandic team had to advance past the first round of qualifying, but doing so gave them a chance to gain momentum as their rivals were losing it. Before this encounter, the hosts had won three straight games and three straight Champions League games, scoring 13 goals.
It’s difficult to imagine the visitors matching Breidablik on this trip given their poor road record in this competition. The home team is favored to win again because they have won five of their last six games there.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
